Physically and Chemically Evaluation for the Water Quality Criteria in a Farm on Akcay


Akcay is a high flow stream supported with strong bracket and is emerging from border of Beyagac County in Denizli province. In this study, it was performed for determining some limnological traits of Akcay River in Bozdogan County in Aydin province. This study was conducted with a 12-month period between January 2010 and December 2010. The chosen pilot farm is raising fish (Oncorhynchus mykiss). The water of Akcay River is used on farm. Some limnological parameters (dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH, EC, nitrite, nitrate, orthophosphate, minerals) were investigated for determining the water quality of zone.
